If you're afraid of ghosts and ghouls and things that go bump in the night, you had better leave a light on, because...no, not really. Munster Matcher, despite being chock-full of, well, monsters, isn't scary at all. Munster Matcher is a cute and simple memory-matching game, but instead of matching random items, you're trying to match up various monsters and other creepies like bats and skulls.
Munster Matcher is exactly like every other game of this style that you've ever played. You tap on cards to flip them and try to match up two cards with the same monster. You can hit the shuffle button before you start a game to bring up a new deck; there are multiple designs from which to choose.
You start off the game with with ten different breeds of monster, and each time you complete a board in less than 35 seconds, you uncover a new type of monster. It's harder than it sounds (or maybe I just have a terrible memory) — I've played quite a few games and I've only finished one in under 35 seconds one time!
The monsters are all pretty cute — actually, the graphics for Munster Matcher in general are very nicely done. The game also has a Cards page where you can check out all the monsters you have unlocked (the iTunes store description says you can manage your cards there, but I've looked and looked and haven't seen anything to indicate there's anything to do other than look at them). There's also a Statistics page which records the number of games you've played, your best and worst times, and your highest and lowest number of taps (cards turned over). There are also some cute monster-y sound effects when you shuffle the cards or finish a game.
Munster Matcher is probably most well-suited for kids. I enjoyed it and it has an addictive quality, but if you're looking for a game with some meat to it, this isn't really it. That being said, if you're looking for a memory-style game, Munster Matcher certainly fits the bill.
